be about a year and that the united states and israel and the world community would know if and when iran makes that turn. another thing they agree on, it can't be just a policy of containing iran, allowing them to go nuclear, but keeping them contained much like the old cold war as the west did with the soviet union. but prime minister netanyahu wants a more forthright stance publicly from the united states in terms of that red line. setting forth, delineating a clear deadline, clear red line of how far iran can or cannot go in developing those nuclear weapons. here's a little bit more of what he told david gregory. >> is israel closer to taking action into its own hands? >> we always reserve the right to act. but i think that if we are able to coordinate together a common position, we increase the chances that neither one of us will have to act. >> he wants more coordination with the united states in taking a stronger stand against iran. meanwhile ambassador rice says iran is growing more isolated under the policies that are now in place absent any military action. >> iran is more isola
this country back on track by electing mitt romney the next president of the united states? [ cheers ] >> the problem with president obama and lots of politicians like him in washington are that they're more concerned about their next election than they are about the next generation. we are not going to make that mistake. we will lead. because what mitt and i are asking you is, help us get this country back on the right track. we want to earn your votes and deserve this victory so that we have the mandate and the moral authority to get this country back on the right track. [ cheers ] >> now, to be fair, president obama came in in some pretty tough times. no two ways about that. he inherited a difficult situation. but here's the problem. he didn't make things any better. he's made things worse! he's run out of ideas. and that is why -- no, he had high des. let me correct you there. he had a lot of ideas and he got most of his ideas in place and that's the problem. you see -- >> there you see the gop vice presidential candidate there paul ryan stumping on the campaign trail in the all-
much. may god bless you. may god bless the american people. and may god bless the united states of america. >>> the obama campaign senior adviser says don't expect the same level of voter enthusiasm for president obama this year like it was in 2008. >> this election was always going to be close because we live in a closely divided country. i remind people all the time that just four years ago everyone was talking about the president's landslide and he got 53% of the vote. so let's understand that we live in a very closely divided electorate. we have for quite some time, and this election was, quite frankly, always going to be close. >> meanwhile, mitt romney's reportedly spending the next few days preparing for the upcoming presidential debates which begin next month. as the party gets ready for its national convention in charlotte, north carolina, preparations are well under way at the time warner cable arena in charlotte. hello to you, chris. >> reporter: alex, good afternoon. the opening of the democratic national convention is still two days away but there's still plenty pla
poor circumstances is now lower in the united states than in most of europe. that should shock us. because those are countries with aristocratic histories, very rigid class systems. yet now you have a greater chance of rising from poor circumstances than in the u.s. and what's so striking, the paradox, is that rubio and other republicans talk about upward mobility and the american dream. but they don't offer any ideas in today's circumstances for what we need to do on public policy to actually increase the odds that we can renew the american dream for the next generation. >> here's what's slightly depressing. you write after listening to president obama's proposals democrats are also, quote, unequal to today's challenges. tell me about that. >> there's no question president obama, the agenda he has from his first term and what he's proposing focus on college costs, k-12 education. it's better than what the republicans are offering because basically all they're doing is cutting taxes, cutting taxes mostly for the best off, despite what mitt romney was trying to allege on "meet the
'm alex witt. there you see the president of the united states. he's in melbourne, florida. we'll take you right now to listen to part of his speech. >> two fundamentally different paths for america. two very different visions for our future. and our fight is for that basic bargain that built the middle class in this country and the strongest economy the world's ever known. and it was basically a simple idea. the idea that here in america, hard work will pay off. that here in america, responsibility will be rewarded. that everybody gets a fair shot and everybody does their fair share and everybody plays by the same rules from wall street to main street to washington, d.c. and that -- that basic bargain is why i ran for president. because i saw too many jobs disappearing overseas. too many families struggling with the costs that keep ongoing up even though paychecks aren't going up. too many people racking up more and more debt just to make the mortgage or pay tuition or put gas in the car or food on the table. and when this house of cards collapsed in this great recession, we saw millions
of the united states is an awesome figure merely to share the platform with him on equal terms is the gain in stature, good performance will be gauged even better. why would any president agree to participate in an event that ultimately -- the -- because it's become now a demand, president obama suddenly bailed on debates. then, you know, he would be seeming like a poor sport. and also these debates are agreed upon long before the fall season, they're everything from the podium to the lighting, everything is worked out between the parties. >> do you think the presidential debate has ever changed the course of an election? >> i definitely do, i think we just talked about 1960, i think it changed it. i think in 1976, in 1980, i think also one could argue in 2000, it would al gore's kind of a robotic performance against george w. bush that cost him a lot. - >> rolling his eyes and -- >> the lock box that nobody understood what he was talking about. and the way -- even the way his makeup looked. one of the problems of these debates anymore, it's not just substance, people are looking at eye ro
to the population of the united states is now increasing. and it's not just white supremacies and neo-nazis. that's one of the specific investigations i did. what's more widely known are the soldiers with mentally unhealthy disorders. >> that is perhaps an entirely separate conversation. when you talk about the suicides and all those kind of things, deplorable numbers there. that said, colonel, regarding the first part of our conversation with matt, any validity to this? do you or any of your current military colleagues recognize this as a problem? >> well, there had been some problem in the past. don't forget we decided that we were going to go to war and we required a large number of troops without having the political will to have a draft and, therefore, widespread service. and anytime a society does that, you're going to have to relax the standards. and for a period of time we did have either mlax standards or standards not followed. the people who recruit soldiers, sailors, airmen and marines into the service don't have to deal with them once they're in. having said all that, at the end of t
class voters about crime in the united states or about the maybe some of the parts much the civil rights movement they didn't like. and then when with ronald reagan would talk about welfare queen, same thing, a coded racial message. so what are the messages this time? well, the most important one is in the ads that the romney campaign is doing on welfare. these ads are inaccurate but making it sound as if president obama wants to, quote, send them a check, just send them a check. welfare recipients. more than half of all of their ad budget is dwoeevoted to thes ads. now, they toned that down at the convention because that so obviously is a racial subtext. they toned that down, but they do have a couple of other things that still will do conjure kind of the same deal, both paul ryan and mitt romney said in their speeches that money was going to be raided from medicare to pay for obamacare. >> i heard that. >> what that's code for is, hey, white senior citizen voter, your money is going to be taken and given to possibly black minority, uninsured, poor people. that plays on their fears that
